    This is without hesitation the best hostel I've ever been to. I cannot recommend it enough. The staff are super nice and always available. The evening dinner was the best time to meet other travelers. This hostel creates the perfect environment to meet new people, hangout and enjoy the stay. Thank you so much.

    I regret to have stayed only 6 nights there. The place has a special vibe, I met many amazing travellers there. The staff is superb - friendly, helpful, taking care 24/7 of the guests and keeping everything tidy. Props to Adam who is working all day and night to ensure everbody has a memorable stay. He has amazing cooking skills, make sure you try his fabulous hot sauce! There is a freshly cooked dinner every evening and everbody gathers in the common area - makes it super easy to socialize.

    My stay at LePenguin was a great experience. It had a great, relaxed vibe, and a very nice outside area to sit and relax. The staff was super friendly and the rooms were very clean, and the bed was also super comfy. Great value for money. I highly recommend!

    The place is well located close to the city centre and also the staff is really good. The only downside I saw was the toilets and showers weren't that good, kind old. But the place is very clean and tidy. The staff are aways taking care of the hostel and still giving attention and helping the guests.

    Easy to find, good location close to a big supermarket. Good facilities, nice staff, clean and quiet place. The familly dinner and the bar can be a good option if needed. The atmosphere was pretty quiet due to the weather and the low season. Will try to come back in June or September. For the minus: the shower's door was narrow and the handle in the room 4B should be fixed. Otherwise nothing to really complain about.
